Lunchtime Follies or....
How Not To Re-heat A Boiled Egg
Scene 1: a snowy afternoon at home
in the fridge - 1 boiled egg
said egg is taken and peeled by well-meaning hungry girl with plans of enjoying it on toast.
egg is placed on a plate
Scene 2: egg on plate is ominously placed into microwave - which beeps as 're-
heat' button is pressed
Scene 3: hungry girl hums to herself as microwave whirrs and pops some toast
in the toaster
cat licks paw
Scene 4: "POW!!"
cat: dives under table
Scene 5: the afternoon tranquility shattered,
the microwave door is apprehensively opened
hungry girl surveys the carnage
the egg she was so looking forward to eating now having been
reduced to egg-shrapnel....like so...
I think next time I'll scramble 'em...
Not in the microwave...
